How to have tough conversations about mental health

How to have tough conversations about mental health

Those who misuse opioids on a weekly basis attempt suicide at a rate of 200 percent more than others. "Firearms were the most common method of suicide used by those with and without a known diagnosed mental health condition". It's a hidden problem for many people.

"And, unfortunately, our data show that the problem is getting worse", Anne Schuchat, MD, principal deputy director at CDC, said at a press briefing, reports Medscape.

Their untimely deaths are part of a growing problem across the nation. Alzheimer's and drug overdoses are the other two causes that are on the rise, according to Schuchat.

"We don't have all the answers".

Stories like theirs are becoming less uncommon - research shows suicide rates are rising across the country.

The increases range from six percent in DE to 58 percent in North Dakota. They also looked at data from its National Violent Death Reporting System which covers 27 states to gain a fuller picture of the circumstances surrounding the suicides. Middle-aged adults - ages 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase. Though it's not clear why, there are some hints that the economic effects of the Great Recession of 2008 could be partly responsible. "Talking about suicide with someone who maybe even thinking about it can actually prevent it from happening". Dubbed the Werther Effect, it's very real.

Funding has also stalled for the 24-hour, toll-free Suicide Lifeline at $7 million per year since 2013, according to Schumer. Or for worldwide folks, a list of crisis centers can be found here. Overall, almost 45,000 people died by suicide in 2016, which is more than twice the number of deaths from homicide, the CDC said.

"So we want them to know whatever they're going through is valid, that the pain is valid, but there's help out there".

" The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255), a network of crisis centers, provides free and confidential counseling around the clock for people in distress, including emotional support, resources for callers and their loved ones, and best practices for professionals".

North Dakota had the highest rate increase at 57.6 percent, but the report found that the rate increased more than 30 percent in 25 states, including South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Kansas.
